Aerotech’s Automation 3200 motion, vision, PLC, robotics and I/O platform represents a revolutionary advancement over traditional PC-bus-based motion controllers, featuring a high-performance, software-only motion controller with 32 axes of synchronized motion control, in an advanced, high-performance distributed control architecture. It is software-based (no PC slots required) and marries a robust, high performance motion engine with vision, PLC, robotics and I/O in one unified programming environment. Integration of multiple common automation tools into a single platform provides users the ability to integrate, develop and maintain the system faster with lower cost. The system is used in many applications in medical laser processing, machine tool, semiconductor, data storage, and automotive industries.
